NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       sm,  sm.bak,  state  - Status monitor directories and file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /etc/sm, /etc/sm.bak, /etc/state

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The directories /etc/sm and /etc/sm.bak are  generated  by
       the  rpc.statd  daemon.   Each entry in /etc/sm represents
       the name of the system to be monitored by the status monitor.
   Upon  its  recovery,  the  status monitor moves all
       entries from the  /etc/sm  directory  to  the  /etc/sm.bak
       directory  and  notifies  the  corresponding  statd of its

       The /etc/state file is generated by the  rpc.statd  daemon
       to record its version number; that is, the number of times
       the rpc.statd daemon was invoked.  The version  number  is
       incremented each time the system crashes or recovers.  The
       system sends this  state  number  to  status  monitors  on
       remote  systems when it notifies them of a crash or recovery.


       Commands: rpc.statd(8), rpc.lockd(8) delim off
